[London, UK] Call-out for a unity demonstration against the far right (Oct 13)

received 16.09.18

Large militant antifascist mobilisation in London. October 13.

A coalition of groups including London Antifascists have made a call-out for a unity demonstration against the far right Democratic Football Lads Alliance (DFLA). The far right have proved themselves to be a resurgent threat this year, mobilising a 20,000 strong rally in central London in June and have attacked trade unionists, people of colour and left wing bookshops. Left unchecked they are sure to repeat these outrageous attacks.

Antifascists have started to come together to counter this new threat. In July a militant bloc of around 500 antifascists came together to oppose a #FreeTommy demonstration. Look out for ways you can get involved in building a mass antifascist movement in the coming weeks.

If you are in London please save the date and join the demonstration. If you are outside of London consider organising transport for your friends and comrades. Meet up point TBA.

[UK] Known fascist has car vandalised in Bristol

received 12.08.2018

The guitarist for ‘Queensbury Rules’ (a ‘Blood & Honor’ band) had his car sabotaged in the early hours of the 7th of August.

Wojciech (Woj) Wasilewski, a known fascist had all 4 tyres of his car punctured, the bodywork scratched and a message sprayed which reads: “Woj = Fascist” and on the otherside: “[heart symbol] ANNA YPG”.

The car was parked on Trinity St (New Town) St Philips, sometimes parked on Hassell Drive, both near Trinity Police Station, Bristol. The car is a red Hyundai, reg: EA60TWX

Woj and his Polish friends live above ‘Skin Deep’, a tattooist shop on Old Market (close to where the car was parked). The shop is run by ‘Ozzie’, an old National Fronter from Kingswood, Bristol.

Woj has been seen in a ‘Queensbury Rules’ T-shirt with “Pie and Mash” printed on the back (cockney slang for ‘fash’). It also had the slogan: “Five little words” which means “We go where we want”. But the reality is they don’t, their gigs are very secretive and so we decided to go below the belt and kick him in the bollocks.

There is graffiti near Woj’s flat, which is separate from this attack, that also mentions Anna Cambell: “When you fight fascism, the rules of engagement should be of your own making”

Take ’em on the blind side cell.

Sydney: Memorial graffiti for Dan & Spit

Received on 7/4/18:

On the 4th of July 2018 some anarchists in Sydney painted a memorial piece for Dan Shersty and Lin (Spit) Newborn.

Dan and Spit were young anti-fascist skinheads, punk musicians, and founding members of the Las Vegas chapter of Anti-Racist Action.

On the 4th of July 1998 they were lured into the desert on the outskirts of Vegas and gunned down by a gang of 6 white supremacists, murdered by six known white supremacist, only three of whom ever served time for the murders.

Twenty years on, their memory is kept alive in the daily struggle against racism and fascist terror.

[Portugal] Communiqué from the Portuguese Antifascist Movement

                                                                        received on 04.04.18

Communiqué from the Portuguese Antifascist Movement

In the last few weeks, several news has come to the fore in the media about the growing of the extreme-right in Portugal and about the violence perpetrated by these nazi-fascist groups.

This growing wave of violence comes as no surprise for us. In the last years, we have been denouncing it, and organizing to face the gratuitous, racist and  xenophobic violence. At the moment, there are several antifascist groups in Portugal, from north to south, which have been calling people’s attention to this problem, but these groups have been discredited by persons and political parties who minimize the antifascist struggle, and who, in many cases, call themselves antifascists. Once again, reality demonstrates that what we have denounced about groups such as the “Hammerskins” or political parties such as the “Partido Nacional Renovador” (“National Renovator Party”) or the more recent “Nova Ordem Social” (“New Social Order”) is more than true and that we must not overlook other groups that walk undercover and hidden. Besides these groups, we won’t overlook the successive governments who feed and let people with such connections circulate through public institutions. We also want to mention that, once more, the media has used the word “skinhead” in a wrong manner.

In a very brief but explicit way, skinheads emerged in England, they were youngsters from the working class who identified with certain aspects of the Jamaican culture brought to England by Afro-Caribbean immigrants with whom they socialized, the music they listened to was mainly reggae and ska, and for these obvious reasons they were not racists or xenophobes.

We are antifascists of different age groups, from various parts of the country, with political views that are many times different, but with a common idea and struggle: antifascism. That said, and contrary to what the media might say, we cannot be compared to these groups or parties from the extreme-right, because we are no criminals, we call on tolerance, we want to fight racism, xenophobia, homophobia, chauvinism and all types of oppression.

It is urgent that people inform themselves, that they organize, that they join the antifascist struggle, that they support antifascist groups and movements in their cities.

Belgrade: Solidarity actions supporting the struggle for freedom and autonomy in Afrin

https://vimeo.com/260965926

In the recent days there have been several solidarity actions in Belgrade supporting the struggle for freedom and autonomy in Afrin, part of the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria (Rojava).

Posters and writings on the walls appeared in several focal points of the city, such as the turkish cultural center, to denounce the unspoken profit that the balkan weapon industry is making out of the recent conflict in Rojava and the political subjugation of the Vučić-government and other politicians in the Balkans-region to the AKP. In addition, this monday a banner was hanged from a buildung in Trg Republike (the main square of Belgrade) saying “Stop the invasion in Afrin! Lets defend self-organization against states and capital!!”

These actions are meant to support the resistance of people of Rojava, to stand for their social revolution that represents a threat to the expansionist fascism of AKP.
The silent complicity of EU and UN in the invasion is also mentioned as it is well known how several powers are benefiting not only financially but also politically from the attack on Afrin.

In Belgrade as all over the world solidarity is shown to unveil the dirty side of an imperialist war against the people in Afrin and all the region perpetrated by this coalition of forces.

These acts of dissent anticipate the official international day of action for Afrin, called by the comrades of Rojava for the 24th of March.

Berlin: We are all terrorists – solidarity with anarchist prisoners in Russia

received on 15.02.18

From Rigaer Street, we send signs of solidarity and rage to anarchist prisoners in Russia, responding to the call from Russia for International Days of Solidarity with Russian Anarchist Political Prisoners.

These days we heard from the arrests of antifascists and anarchists in Russia. Already before, in the months of October and November 2017, in the city of Penza, six people got arrested and brutally tortured by the federal secret service FSB. In January this year, in the city of St. Petersburg, a second wave of arrests followed with two persons first being kidnapped by the FSB for one day and only the day after being officially registered in remand prison. The secret services‘ offensive, led by Putins regime, was accompanied by house raids in different cities of the country. As a reason for the repression the FSB constructed an anarchist terrorist group, named „Net“, planning a series of attacks on the presidential elections in March 2018 as well as on the World Cup in June / July 2018 in Russia leading to armed insurrection and which is supposed to exist in several cities of Russia and Belarus. There is no evidence proofing the real existence of the group. The only evidences used are the statements of the arrested, which the FSB extorted from the prisoners using torture and the threat of further acts of torture. In Penza, the group got constructed by the statements of the first arrested person. The link between the „members“ of the group is having played airsoft games together. Except of this first person, who got released beginning of the year into house arrest, all the others are still kept in the remand prison.

The experiences of intimidation and physical violence in the remand prison which the prisoners were subjected to, reveal the cruelty of the state apparatus. While democracy in Germany is still trying to veil the brutality of state power, the accounts from Russia affirm us, that the watchdogs of the system – the wretched trash of the executive – are capable of maintaining their authority only by the threat and implementation of physical violence.

Repression is meant to discourage us, to defeat movements and strain us individually into the controlled system or even destroy us. It‘s anything but easy to not feel powerless, to not feel incapable of opposing their massivity. But if we listen to the messages of rage and anarchist struggle from exactly these places, the lines and images encourage us. They show us, that in every place where there is a human heart beating to the rhythm of rebellion, moments of resistance are likely to occur. They show us, that no matter how fierce the repression may be, there will be people who do not surrender to fight for their ideas. The resonance of solidarity is our weapon.

From the G20-prisoners in Hamburg to the prisoners in Penza or St. Petersburg to Berlin – the stronger their repression, the more furious and passionate our resistance.

Russia: Support anarchist and antifa prisoners in St.Petersburg and Penza!

received on 31.01.18

Fundraising for lawyers working on cases about police raids and arrests of anarchists and antifascists in St. Petersburg and Penza, Russia has begun. At the moment two persons in St. Petersburg and five in Penza are arrested, more are connected to the case as witnesses. Raids and repressions are likely to continue. Arrested are charged with part 2 of rticle 205.4 of russian Criminal Code (participation in terrorist organisation) at the request of court from Penza.

On January 23, on the way to Pulkovo Airport the Federal Security Service (FSB) detained Victor Filinkov. In order to get the testimony he was beaten up and tortured with electric shocks in the woods. Signs of torture were confirmed by the Filinkov’s lawyer and members of the Public Monitoring Commission (ONK) who have visited him in the pre-trial detention center. Filinkov is arrested for two months.

On January 25 the FSB came unexpectedly with a raid to Igor Shishkin’s apartment. After the raid neither his lawyer, nor members of Public Monitoring Commission were unable to find Igor for more than a day. On January 27 Igor with signs of a beating was brought to a court session where he was arrested in Pre-trial Detention Center for two months.
Journalists were not allowed to attend the hearing and evenmore two of them were arrested.

Tortures were also applied to witnesses. Ilya Kapustin was beaten up and tortured with electric shock while police demanded him to give testimony that some of his acquantances are up to “something dangerous”. Numerous
traces of the stun gun usage were recorded later by health service.

In Penza, arrests began already in October of 2017. Local FSB arrested six young persons, five of whom are currently in a pre-trial detention.
All of the arrested were brutally tortured. One may read in detail about the Penza events from this article.

Legal help is necessary for prisoners (whose number can increase) and witnesses. So far it is early to speak about the certain amount of money, but it will be at least 200 thousand rubles for work of lawyers in the next months.

Porto Alegre, Brasil: Our Country is the World

The World is My Country!

received 10/8/17

Today we stretch a strip in a busy avenue of Porto Alegre with the words “O Mundo é Meu País!” (The World is My Country!). We want to remind all people that no country, new or old, will solve our problems or give us the freedom we want! On the contrary, more borders further restrict people’s freedom. Mainly in a country based on regionalism and eurocentric notions.

Separatists argue that is not possible to indentify what in fact unites
people born in Brasil. We can not but agree. But that’s because all
nations are abstractions! Borders are nothing more than arbitrary
separations, based on superficial or invented similarities that ignore
the original people, such as the Guarani people wo inhabit the region of three states, but also others parts of Brasil and also Paraguay and
Argentina. Nations are born motivated by forced migration, genocides and ethnic cleansing. A nation, however small, is an abstraction that serve us nothing. And inthis case, even worse, because it is racist when it is based on a european ancestry.

These newly invented borders allow us to paint as an enemy who is on the other side of the line, and thus control us all even more (and send us to unfounded wars). In the case of the movement “O Sul é Meu País” (The South is My Country) this enemy is created by placing the southern states as exploited by the northern states. They go so far as to say that the southern states are like a colony from the rest of the country. This myopic view generates a scapegoat and obfuscates the real responsible for scarcity and crisis.

Capitalizing on the growing rejection of partisan politics, the movement balances on a tightrope by declaring itself no-partisan, seeking to appear neutral. Despite this, their laderships can not hide their neoliberal and right-wing tendencies, bordering on fascism. In fact, the independence of the south is even a pattern of neo-nazi movements.

Defenders of the separation of the three southern states say that
“Brasília does not represent us”, but wants to replace it with another
government that, like every government, is a tool to control and oppress the people.
Yes, Brasília (capital of Brasil) does not represent us, but Piratini (capital of this new country) does not represent us either. No one represent us. We are ungovernable!

No more countries! For the end of ALL borders!

London: A communique from angry Croydonians

On 31st March, a young boy, Reker Ahmed, was brutally beaten by a gang in the area of Croydon whilst waiting for a bus. The gang (of almost 25) approached the boy and after asking where he was from, chased him and attacked him, leaving him with life-threatening injuries. He was only 17 years old and currently applying for asylum in the UK. This attack occurred on the Shrublands Estate, in Shirley, a diverse working-class area and its significance was felt by the local community.

In response to this racist and xenophobic violence, we chose to decorate the neighbourhood with our outrage. In offering a message of solidarity here, we demonstrate our solidarity everywhere; from the U.S to Greece, from Belarus to the Middle East; for all victims of the State, of the border regime and for all victims of hate crime.

We carried out this action as a clear message from the community, but also as a message to the perpetrators. At the time, we were still unsure as to whether this was an attack carried out by people from within the estate, as it would be unlikely and unheard of in such a diverse, close community. However, sadly, the gang consisted of people from many backgrounds. It is the true that nationalism blurs the truth of oppressive class and racial hierarchies and has us identify with our own oppression. However, the response has to our action has revealed exactly what we also suspected; that this was an attack endorsed by self-identifying FASCISTS from likely within the area.
The media coverage of this event described the incident as an ‘alleged hate crime’ and has thus far refrained from describing the incident as explicitly fascist. However, Nazi graffiti was painted and we see this as clear evidence that the attack was not a random case of mob violence; but a held a targeted and politically understood motive of hatred towards migrants. (We have since covered and subverted this fascist graffiti: seen below.)

LET US BE CLEAR:

-We will not stand by as migrants are scapegoated and brutalised, encouraged by the fascist rhetoric of governments and their right-wing media vanguard.

-We will not allow immigration enforcement to abduct people from our communities and sentence them to deportation and death.

– We will certainly not be intimidated in the face of Brexit Britain and the toxic resurgence of far-right politics.

– We shall respond duly to all of these threats and the violence they inflict on our communities.

WHY?

It is perhaps no coincidence that the attack took place the night before Britain First hosted a pathetic, tiny far-right rally in the heart of Central London. Most anti-fascists and other discerning political types understand that the far-right in the UK is currently fractured and disorganised, but Brexit is a historical force that carries the possibility of an emboldened fascist presence on our streets.

It is thus an urgent necessity that we EDUCATE ourselves, PREPARE ourselves and begin ORGANISING within our communities using dialogue and action. We must empower ourselves to challenge and disrupt the logic of oppression wherever it rears its many heads; from the hydra of the State to the long neck of fascism, we are not afraid and we will continue fighting.

Croydon is vibrant, Croydon is migrant, Croydon is strong.

To the fascists in Shrubland: YOU ARE IN THE WRONG NEIGHBOURHOOD. KEEP HIDING.

To everyone else: THEY ARE AFRAID. LET’S KEEP IT THAT WAY.

JUSTICE FOR REKER AHMED.

A group of comrades mobilized fast and smashed up the vehicle.

Minneapolis, USA: Banner for Anti-Fascist Prisoners

Just as rush hour began on the 25th of July, a banner was dropped over a highway in Minneapolis, MN that was painted with the words “LOVE ANTIFA HATE COPS”.

This action was taken in solidarity with the 2nd annual international day of solidarity with antifascist prisoners.

As the Republican National Convention concludes in Cleveland, the anti-fascist task has never seemed so dire. While so many across the United States search desperately for an electoral solution to present itself, it is clear that one can’t vote against fascism, it must be fought and defeated.

Neither fascism nor democracy.

USA: Graffiti for Anti-Fascists – For a Black July

Received July 12th along with the image:

In response to the call for a day of solidarity with the Sacramento anti-fascists, and the call for solidarity with anti-fascist prisoners in Russia, some graffiti was painted in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota.

This solidarity however does not exist separately from the current reality of struggle. The connections between a dozen neo-nazis being militantly run out of the California state capital and groups of black youth ferociously confronting the brutal St. Paul police department as happened on July 9th should be as clear as day.

All forms of domination must be attacked and destroyed.

Death to white supremacy

USA: Call for Day of Solidarity with Sacramento, Sunday July 10th

[Received July 5th / Call originally put out on PSA]

What was supposed to happen Sunday June 26th 2016 was a mega-march of white supremacists groups against what they deemed to be the anitifa threat to their “faith, family and folk”. The Traditionalist Workers Party, Golden State Skins and KKK were set to rally on the West Capitol steps in Downtown Sacramento.

They never made it onto those steps. within seconds of stepping onto the capitol they were chased away by a large crowd of anti-fascists. Over 300 anti-fascists and anti-racists had converged hours before the planned march in an attempt to shut it down. When 20 or so white supremacists armed with shields and adorned with TWP imagery attempted to take those steps they were attacked with rocks, bottles, knives, bats, fists, pepper spray and anything that those antifa could get their hands on. They were chased for blocks and when they attempted to escape in a waiting car, all of its windows were smashed out.

In the end it wasn’t only white supremacist blood that splattered the ground. Several antifa comrades had also been stabbed, received knife wounds and suffered serious injuries. Later, the leader of the TWP would call the blood pouring from the chests of our friends a “victory” for him and his bonehead brethren.

Boneheads like the TWP ad GSS are only the most obvious and explicit manifestations of white-supremacy. The police, the media and countless other institutions uphold white-supremacy in our everyday lives. On the 26th, anti-fascists fought against the police and the media as well as the more explicit racist in the streets. As more and more events occur disrupting specific groups of white supremacists we think it is important to remember that the fight against white-supremacy is not only about a specific group or political candidate. The fight against organized white supremacist groups cannot be separated from larger struggles against the ways that white supremacy, patriarchy, homophobia and transphobia structure the everyday reality of domination in which we live. We want to celebrate all those who attack these structures and extend these spaces of revolt beyond moments like Sundays rally.

This is a call for a day of solidarity with all those who put their lives and bodies on the line to confront white supremacists in the streets of Sacramento on the 26th. Solidarity means many things, and can articulate itself in many ways. Demos, attacks, letter writings, benefits for medical fee, banner drops and more are welcome on this day. Just make sure to securely take photos or write reportbacks and post them itsgoingdown.org, anarchistnews.org or your local anarchist news source.

As our comrades recover in the hospital, let’s show them that we are thinking about them and keep fighting white supremacy wherever it exists.

Tampere, Finland: Soldiers of Odin clubhouse vandalized

Received May 25th along with the images:

The wannabe nazivigilante group Soldiers of Odin have a little bit of cleaning to do. The neonazi leader of the group Mika Ranta was just convicted of aggravated assault and assault. Ranta, who claims to “make our women safe”, was convicted of attacking a female bystanders who tried to protect the inoffensive victim Ranta attacked in the first place. Most of the leading members of SoO have been sentenced numerous times of assaults, drug crimes and even rape. Being fed up with their nazigibberish we decided to visit their clubhouse in Tampere at the address Käyräkuja 30, Tampere.

In Tampere SoO has been relatively inactive and when visiting their clubhouse we noticed why! What a mess! Naziflags were standing side by side with whitepride symbols, nationalist flags and matchboxes from the True Finn Party. As the owner of premises was reluctant to kick out the nazis we left a note in the walls, windows, doors, tables, couches and well, everywhere to remind of what happens if you rent to nazis.

The premises are rented in the name of Ville Kuusinen, who just happens to be the vice-co of a local chapter of the neofascist organisation Suomen Sisu. Suomen Sisu has numerous MP’s in the finnish parliament on the list of the True Finn party. As it happens, all wp-nazis, nazivigilantes, neofascists and “nationalists” always seem to come together.

Northern Greece: Fascists pulled out gun during antifascist action in Kavala

NAZIS KICKED OUT FROM NEIGHBOURHOODS

FASCISTS PULLED OUT GUN DURING ANTIFASCIST ACTION IN KAVALA
MILITANT ANTIFASCISM EVERYWHERE – Kavala Antinazi

Saturday May 21 The Nazi thugs of the town turned up at the 10-day festival of the Technical Institute of Kavala, where they clearly showed their cowardly impulses; they smashed the car of the girlfriend of the one of the two targeted antifascist comrades who were attending the festival. They immediately disappeared, as they were unlucky to have been spotted during their brave act by many eye-witnesses, who happened to pass by the parking lot just then.

Sunday May 22 While the two targeted antifascists were attending the 10-day festival, four fascist scum were spotted by antifascists at the port of Kavala. Both the fascists and their vehicles took the lesson they deserved. As genuine cowards, being unable to cope with the price of their fascist actions, one of them shamelessly pulled out a gun while fleeing the scene and after shooting in the air, pointed his gun towards the antifascists, who instantly stopped. Of course, the sick fascist delirium didn’t end there, as they caught and severely beat one female antifascist, who did not hesitate to confront the cowards on her own. They put the gun on her head and were kicking her while she was lying unconscious on the ground. [She is doing well now.] As some antifascists rushed towards her to help, two of the four fascists (Triantafyllos Alexandridis and Andreas Rigoulis) were retreating -being betrayed by the other two fascists- and were shouting “from now on with guns”, while showing off the gun.

London Antifa Solidarity Tour – Financial support of prosecuted comrade in Kavala, Greece

[Kavala, Greece] London Antifa Solidarity Tour / Talk + Social

Saturday December 5th
7pm – 11pm
LARC
62 Fieldgate Street
London E1 1ES

We will be asking for donations at the door.

London Anti-Fascists are organising a short tour with a comrade from Kavala, Greece to raise awareness and solidarity for their struggle against fascists and state repression.

Anti-fascists in Kavala have been some of the most active in all of Greece, organising demonstrations and actions against neo-nazi groups over the past years.

We are organising this tour as one of the comrades from Kavala is facing serious charges on December 9th and is desperate need for solidarity and financial support.

ABOUT THE CASE:

On Sunday 26th January 2014, a few hours before a scheduled anti-fascist rally, neo-nazis from the “Patriotic Movement” smashed up a shop owned by one well know anti-fascist and attempted to set fire to it, endangering the lives of those inside the building. After the intervention of local residents, as well as people from the surrounding nightclubs, the worst was avoided.

Our comrade, once notified of the attack on his store, went down there to see what had happened. A few moments later some plain-clothes police officers arrived, having been notified by the local residents. At that moment our comrade is informed that before the smashing and arson of his store, a clash had taken place between a group of antifascists and a group of members of the Patriotic Movement. The “Patriotic Movement” were guarding the public space of the Municipal Park to prevent any anti-fascists from attending.

Though refusing to have anything to do with the police, our comrade for the purpose of insurance had to go to the police station. Whilst waiting for 3 hours he was informed that he was arrested for public disturbance. Apparently members of the Patriotic Movement in collusion with the police attempted to put the blame for a previous confrontation on him.

Not only were the Patriotic Movement attempting to control the streets and public spaces, they had after the incident violently attack two youths in a park and then proceeded to work with the police in making this claim against our comrade.

A few hours later the antifascist rally, organised by the Autonomous Collective of Kavala [Kavala Autonomous Hangout], Vironos 3 squat and individual antifascists, took place in Faliro Park. From the very first moment of the rally, the Park was surrounded by several riot squads (around 8 to 10) and many plain-clothes cops. As soon as the antifascists (150 to 170 people from Kavala and other towns) blocked the road in front of the park, police vans shut off the road, in order to prevent the antifascists to approach the Municipal Park, where at the same time the fascist gathering was being held. Not only neo-nazi Golden Dawn members took part in the fascist gathering, but also other neo-nazi groups, such as the National Socialist Army of Macedonia and other known and unknown fascists from Northern Greece.

After the events of that weekend, two comrades were held in custody for several days and face charges of “disturbance of public order with facial features covered”.

The trial is set for December 9th 2015.

We hope that this tour can further make links between anti-fascists in UK and anti-fascists across Greece.

London: Report of action by No Fixed Abode Anti-Fascists

Remember Przychodnia: Fight Fascism, Patriotism and Militarism!

November 11th, on Armistice Day, No Fixed Abode Anti-Fascists took the steps of Euston War Memorial against patriotism and for solidarity with anti-fascist and anti-militarist struggle.

Two years ago on this day, the Przychodnia squat in Warsaw successfully resisted an attack by neo-fascists on the ‘March for Independence’. Refusing to intervene, police blocked people from reaching the nationalists, who set two cars alight and threw molotovs at the squat. Two squatters were injured while repelling the fascists from the roof.

The wars of the rich and street battles of their nationalist lackeys have a history of resistance by people of no fixed abode. On 20th September 2014, squatters in Calais Bleriot Avenue defended against a fascist attack after a demonstration in the city. During Franco’s rule in Spain, underground squats in Catalonia provided spaces for political refugees, organising an urban resistance. On one occasion in Auschwitz, hundreds of Romani people refused to be taken away and so resisted with knives and bricks. The black poppy remembers those on any or no side who resisted, rebelled and mutinied against the First World War and all wars after.

The anti-fascist resistance at Przychodnia contrasts with the patriotism of today’s Remembrance. A hub of far-right activity on the ground, Remembrance Day phrases British patriotism and anti-German xenophobia as anti-fascist struggle. As the British Legion and Lockheed Martin clap for money and the crowd claps for “national identity”, everywhere people struggle against fascism, patriotism and militarism.

No Fixed Abode Anti-Fascists (NFAAF) is a group of squatters, travellers and homeless people combating fascist and bailiff thuggery.

Germany, Heidenau: Call to solidarity with migrants

nazis off

Back to Heidenau, where the nazis are established…

As long as the racists, motivated by a campaign of fear in the mass media and supported by hypocrite policies, gather and run riot in front of the refugees under the eyes of police, we have the obligation to stand in their path – by all means necessary.
